Tourism management

Enter the exciting world of international tourism with this specialised management degree from Southampton Solent University. You’ll learn the skills, qualities and knowledge required by employers to help you develop a successful career in a growing global industry.

The experienced course team recognise the importance of helping to build the skills, qualities and knowledge to enable graduates to make an immediate impact on employers and develop a successful career. To reinforce this, industry professionals have provided valuable input into the course to ensure that the theory and practice taught help develop key employment skills.

Previous students have had the opportunity to either study abroad at one of our partner institutions and experience a different culture, or undertake a work placement, exposing them to the industry and gaining valuable work experience.

Students have also previously benefitted from guest lectures delivered by travel and tourism industry professionals, providing up-to-date and first-hand knowledge of the industry.

Southampton’s location on the south coast means that students can take advantage of the University’s links with Carnival UK, Southampton International Airport and international tourist attractions such as Beaulieu National Motor Museum in the New Forest National Park. These links also have also provided past students with a variety of case study material in the sector.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
